      fed up..................comes from when a falcon has been fed and wants to rest and digest its meal.
      boozer................comes from when a falcon has a drink which is call bowesing.
      at the end of my tether.............a hawk is trained first to step onto the fist, then to jump and then to fly. When it is flying leash length it is said to be at the end of its tether.
      old hag................a haggard is an adult bird caught when it is thin and needs to moult its old feathers.

      Traditionaly when a group of falcons are taken out they are carried on a square wooden frame , this is called a cadje. Attached to the frame are straps, somebody stands inside the frame and puts the straps onto his shoulders and carries the birds on a cadje. Now you know where the phrase to "cadje a lift comes from". Anyway while on the cadje they would be hooded or they would try to eat each other. They would also be hooded more during early training while they are more frightened of things and while setting up slips at quarry so the noise of the bells doesn't frighten the quarry too soon. They are not left hooded for hours and most will just go to sleep. Once they have been flown and fed a lot will put there head down and wait for the hood they don't mind at all. Most of the time they are left unhooded and only spend perhaps half an hour a day with a hood on.
